Beach Bums

We spent the first week of August with my family for our annual beach week at Holden Beach.  We are always so happy to include Susan, my mom's college friend, in our family!  This week went by particularly quickly.  Time flies when you are having fun!  We had an unexpected treat this year.  Susan gave Mom and me a private concert at a local church.  She needed to spend a few hours practicing for her upcoming Chopin concert in November, and we jumped at the opportunity to hear her play.  It's wonderful to be friends with a concert pianist!

Most of our time was spent on the beach or on the screen porch.  Sims just loves the beach!  Just give him a bucket of water and some shells, and he is entertained for quite a while.

He just goes and goes and goes, until he falls asleep (no matter if he is on the beach or eating lunch).

When he was asleep, we had a wild time!

We always eat lots of good food on this beach trip, but the one meal we must have is low country boil.  I look forward to this every year! 

Can't wait for next  year, when Sims will have a little cousin with whom to play.
